Hilan is an experienced multi-camera director for live captures of orchestral, operatic, and theatrical productions. Since autumn 2020, he has been video director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s acclaimed Behind the Curtain series of digital concerts, released on-demand and broadcast on local NBC and PBS televisions. Beginning this season, he also serves as on-camera musical commentator/host for these concerts. He has also produced captures for New York City Opera and other cultural organizations, as well as related documentary and interstitial content.
“The ASO team does not merely stand there and let the cameras run. Instead, this filmed concert features imaginative and inventive video work, courtesy of director Hilan Warshaw… It is clear from the opening of the concert that this will be no ordinary performance video… The cameras closely track the progress of the music and anticipate the solos of the orchestral players, always in the right place at the right time.”
—Melissa Bargreen, EarRelevant
“Exceptionally attractive visuals and excellent camerawork… a sort of visual legato that set the auditory experience off perfectly (think Fantasia).”
–Mark Thomas Ketterson, ArtsATL
“Clever filming captures players in sectional profile from almost every angle; we see fingers on keys and bows attacking the strings so clearly that you’re almost looking for a puff of rosin. Kudos to the production and recording team, particularly to director Hilan Warshaw…”
“The camerawork was outstanding… great sound recording.”
